A Minnesota thumbs up for Biden, primary system


David Joles – Star Tribune

Voters lined up to cast ballots at First Congregation Church in Minneapolis during Minnesota's first presidential primary in decades on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

Minnesota's Super Tuesday results, which helped catapult former Vice President Joe Biden into the front-runner spot nationally, showed the party was right to forgo its caucus system for a presidential primary.

Some 885,000 Minnesotans turned out to vote in the primary, aided by a lengthy early voting period that allowed many to cast their ballots at their convenience. Compare that with the 318,000 Minnesotans who attended caucuses in 2016, when they had to show up at an appointed hour and place to take part in a process that, let's face it, not everyone relishes.
